Weekly Progress Update #169

To-Do for the week of Nov 1st-7th:

  1. Share my Nov 2022 One Monthly Goal post. √Done
  2. Do a little more stitching on my Sashiko Daisy pouch project. √Done
  3. Start working on some Sew Tiny Christmas ornaments. √Done

To-Do #1

For my November 2022 One Monthly Goal, I am going to make a wonky star pillow cover to go with the Northern Stars Wonky Star quilt I made last year. Read about details here. Below is 12.5 unfinished wonky star that still needs borders to be made into a 16″ pillow cover. I’m debating what I’ll use for borders, perhaps another Ombré Fairy Dust fabric or maybe some of the darker leftover Stonehenge Gradations Ombré in Graphite fabric (the lighter fabric was used for the background of the wonky star).

To-Do #2

I finished stitching the panel for my Sashiko Daisy Pouch. This is my favorite sashiko project ever, but I am putting it aside while I continue to work on small Christmas projects and my 2022 temperature quilts. I hope to get the pouch finished early next year.

To-Do #3

Speaking of small Christmas projects, last year I participated in the Sew Tiny Ornament Sew-Along on Instagram hosted by Kitty Wilkin (@nightquilter). I shared about finishing two Sew Tiny Pine Tree Ornaments on this post. Well, I’ve started five more pine trees that I will embellish in the next few weeks and then make into ornaments.

  1. Work on some paper-pieced trees to make into coasters.
  2. Work on a label for my 2022 New Mexico temperature quilt to be printed by Spoonflower.
  3. Work on some more Sew Tiny Christmas ornaments.

  2. Love the wonky star, and that Sashiko project is so pretty! Those little trees are fun!


  3. Your wonky star pillow will look great. I am looking forward to seeing your Sashiko pouch as well as the finish on the little trees ornaments. I will have to check out the Spoonflower labels! Thank you for linking up with To Do Tuesday!


  4. The wonky star looks great, and I hope you have fun picking out the just right border or borders to get it up to the pillow size you want. The sashiko is stunning, I can see why it’s a favorite!

    I love your Shaskiko–the colors, the stitching and the fabric. Just beautiful. The snowflake fabric on your little ornaments is perfect. Will be fun to see how you finish those up.

    Hi Mary! That pillow is adorbs! I love a good wonky star and that is definitely one. I think the darker gray would look lovely as a border, but I look forward to seeing what you choose! Great job on the Sashiko project and everything you did this week. Good luck with next week’s list. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

    A matching star pillow will be great with that quilt! I love your sashiko stitching, too. Looking forward to seeing the pouch you make out of it. Sounds fun to make some tiny ornaments, too!
